He's Gone to the Ptomaine Tavern
I actually thought this was one of the better shows of the tour musically. It did not have the pageantry of the Paris or Berlin shows, but musically it reminded me of a good mid-80s show. Just felt like you were back in that time enjoying a good show with no hassles in a small unassuming venue.
The Help Slip Frank is good despite some lyrical Probs. From there it just builds. The He's gone is really sweet with a VERY cool Phil vocal transition into the best drums & space of the tour IMO. The break in Miracle where the crowd takes over is timed perfectly.
Nice board as with most of these Europe shows.
This show was in what seemed like a big high school gym. Supposedly held 7000. Band ate bad seafood before the show and was not feeling very well, so it is a miracle they were out there at all. From what I could see through the window to the "backstage" from outside it is no wonder. This is a cool town though. Perfect for GD.
Had all the other shows on tape but never found this one. Thanks to Archive for getting some long sought after things out there.

Middle of the pack for Europe '90
A good show from this tour, but not at the Paris or Berlin level. Nice song selection (Help/Slip/Franklins, TLEO, etc.) is somewhat compromised by Jerry blowing lyrics all over the place.
